The City will be hosting an open house to highlight the importance of backflow prevention and new policies that affect your drinking water. The open house will be set up for Fair Oaks Ranch residents, local irrigators, and backflow testers to come and go as they please to ask questions and educate themselves on backflow prevention and drinking water protection.
Backflow is defined as the undesirable reversal of flow of water or mixtures of water and other liquids, gases or other substances into the City’s water system. These situations can introduce pollutants and contaminants into a public or private water supply when a change in pressure is experienced. These pollutants and contaminants can present health hazards to the residents that utilize the potable water supply.
